Is your Garage Door Ready for Hurricane Season?

As we head into the height of Florida hurricane season, it’s time to make sure that your home is ready to withstand the tropical-force winds that such storms bring. One of the most vulnerable spots on your property is your garage door. If your garage door needs repair, now is the time to address the problem, before the fall storm season begins.

About Garage Door Repair Florida Residents Should Know

Many things can cause a garage door to malfunction. The track of the door can be less than adequate due to the structure shifting slightly over time. This can cause difficulty opening and closing the door or even cause the door to fail to open at all. Garage doors can also be damaged by bumping or nicking them with your automobile or bicycle. Even a small dent can disrupt the integrity of the door and cause it to be more vulnerable to high wind damage.

Door opening systems can also malfunction, leaving you out in the rain and wind during a storm. Most problems with the door opening system have to do with the mechanical system not getting the signal from the remote opening device. This can be due to a problem with the power system or as a result of a stronger signal from a neighboring house.
